  • What did you get yourself for Christmas?

    Hello Everyone and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all

    After upgrading my homebuilt CNC Mill to Mach4 this Fall I needed a bit of something different to work on, so I went out to purchase a new QUIET Air Compressor but came home with a new Yamaha Digital Clavinova CSP 150 Piano. It is amazing, so much more can be done by using the Smart App on a IPad.

    I did order a rebuild kit for my crappy Craftsman air compressor so its running again.

    I will post a video soon as it warms up a bit the shop is very cold this time of year.

    Again, Happy Holidays

    I got a big lump of coal again - could not afford anything else but will be nice to at least have one day this winter that's somewhat warm in the house...

            Whats the Cerianis for, obviously drum brakes, so its a vintage bike. I had some of their forks on a Greaves Pathfinder trials bike.

              Christmas came early for me this year, I got a sailing rig for my kayaks in August. I'd been thinking of making something but this rig from kayaksailor.com was so damn clever I couldn't see myself doing better even though it was far from cheap.

                Vintage cerianis. Nice. What are they going on.

                Not much for chrissy. Little things like wuhanium carbide inserts, tap handle and other little ebay items that may or may not arrive due to the post office system being rubbish.

                  Probably go on a cb 750 or xs 650.. used a lot on flat track and dragbikes.
                  you can run a disc, tight though.. I actually managed to get a 300 or 320 mm rotor on one with 6 piston caliper... very tight..
                  lower tree may be off a Greeves.. actually.

                    Whiskey.
                    If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

                            Machinery wise I finally bought myself a new AXA size wedge style QCTP kit that came with 6 holders instead of the usual 4. And as stocking stuffers an extra half dozen holders.

                            And a bottle of Peat Monster whiskey.... Love those Islay whiskeys....

                            And yes, how about a pic of the bike you're going to put the Cherries onto?

                              I don't always get treated this nicely by Santa! I just tell myself (and the wife) that all my kayaks and fishing gear add up to a season's gas money on a real boat. As for getting there in a hurry, the rig has a surprisingly narrow wind speed window between 'why bother' and 'oh sh*t!' but my last trip of the season in late November was a great combination of fun sailing and awesome tautog fishing.
